Abstract

This study examined the preference and rationale for either online or on-ground classes as reported by master of education graduate students at a small university in Georgia. During 2011-2012, these students completed an anonymous survey in many of their online classes. The questions asked students about their preferences for online and on-ground classes and why they expressed the preference. The results of the study indicated some expected responses such as many students preferred the convenience of online classes, but missed the face-to-face interactions of on-ground classes. This study also disclosed behaviors that online instructors should exhibit and adopt for teaching in the online format in order to build a sense of community that is often lacking.
